Hand Quilting

Did not like the way the border was quilting so I ripped it out. I mark with a #5 mechanical pencil lightly but had to  be removed. Shout, lightly sprayed on and with a toothbrush the marks were removed.  Next I sprayed with plain water to help remove the shout. When it is dried I can mark the blue and white with the feather stencil. Think I will use a chaco yellow.
The white chalk is faintly visible but it will disappear.
I have no idea where my mind was when I was marking this but was not happy with the results.

I've been using the FriXion pen for my redwork, and heat really does take it all out. I haven't tried erasing with the end of the pen, but I know that works on paper. I've tried every marker there is and like the Caran D'ache gold art pencils, too, but you only mark a little way with that because it does rub off after a while.

Thanks for leaving a comment and information on the FriXion pen. I will have to give it a try.
